Headboard Wall Accent

I was so excited when I found this twin headboard. I love all the curvy details!  I have seen these in stores for $150. 
I added Liquid Nails to the joints to make sure the headboard was stable. My hubby helped me cut the legs off after this.
I painted the headboard with CeCe Caldwell's Vintage White, then distressed and waxed it.
I drilled pilot holes and then added the crystal knobs to the headboard.

I also added hangers on the back of the headboard, so this can be a  hanging coat or towel holder. 
Unfortunately, I don't have a place for this so it will go to the holiday market (Woodstock Marketwith me.
Thanks for stopping by!

That is so cute! I have a footboard that was handmade by my Grandfather (the headboard was ruined) and I will have to copy this idea. I love it!

What an adorable coat rack! I have a bed almost like that that I was going to toss out. Not now! This would be perfect in a guest bedroom to hang up towels.
You are full of creativity!! This will sell fast!
